virginia beach, up towards washington. this is a triple threat. not only are we going to get heavy rain, we're going to get high winds and the threat for foreign aidoes, the tornado watch in effect for tarts of the mid atlantic towards the northeast, d.c., parts of new jersey, tornado watch for you until 1:00 p.m. local time. they will probably extend that watch throughout the afternoon up towards the northeast. it is going to be a mess, it's going to be hard to get home today. if you have a flight, be prepared to either wait in the terminal or take -- make a lot of phone calls to see if your flight is delayed or canceled. martha, back to you. martha: from new jersey, that is something you don't hear of every day. janice, thank you very much. this nasty weather is making it tough to get around. thanks. there's a mess in the air and on the rails, up and down the east coast. what better to do in this situation? i say go live on the plaza in the pouring rain. peter, how is it out there? >> reporter: calm before the storm. but all that rain is already causing tons of problems for people up and
eastern virginia and then again, come friday, a threat to southeast new england, mainly the cape. a little early to tell specifically for the cape, but they're doing the right thing in the carolinas, getting the tourists out of the area. bill: it's moving at a pretty quick clip. 16 miles an hour, that's almost lightning speed for a storm this size. what are you telling the folks in north carolina that are watching now? >> reporter: well, it's actually a fairly typical speed as one comes down there and i don't think it will speed up a whole lot until it gets even with them. the watches that are currently in effect are going to have to be upgraded sometime today to a warning. they're doing all the right actions, they've been getting the people alerted as of yesterday, and they're starting to move the high risk communities that only have one way out and flood at a very low tide, they're already having those folks move, so i think we're in good shape on the sense of what the threat is in the market carolina, southeast virginia area. bill: bill, thank you very much. i know you guys are working
of west virginia, he wants to be a democratic senator, just yesterday, he came out and said tax cuts should be held in place. he joins people like joe lieberman, ben nelson of nebraska, bill nelson of florida, jim webb of virginia, all these are moderate democrats. how do you buck that trend when these people are drib ling out by the day? >> you're exactly right, bill. if the conservative -- the conservative democrats are worried, they understand that what's been driving this conversation for the longest time has been that the white house has not been paying sufficient attention to the economy, that the unemployment numbers remain high, and that most americans are pessimistic about what the future holds, and this is everything from the tax hike to the decifit. but for the moment, what we saw last week was the president going on the offensive and saying where are the ideas, where is the help coming from with republicans and the white house has forced congressman boehner to say he would agree to tax cuts even if it meant the tax cuts for the rich weren't coming through. that as you kno
in virginia closing three years after the fed starts moving to phase out light bulbs, ordering government buildings to use fluorescent bulbs to save energy. my next guest thinks that the plan backfired and people are going to lose their jobs from this factory. it's congressman joe barton. this caught our eye. it encapsulate as number of issues out there right now. why are you fighting to save the indan des -- incandescent light bulb? >> they're cheaper, environmentally correct and we think consumers ought to make the correct choice, especially middle and low income americans, they can't afford four, $5 light bulbs when you can get the old fashioned light bulb for 40, 50 cents a pop. martha: but part of the action is to say that the government won't purchase incandescent light bulbs nip. it doesn't mean the rest of us can't. >> it also says it can't be sold as retail in the united states. martha: they can't be sold anywhere after -- when is this going to go into effect? >> 2014. so we want to repeal it. this is indicative of the overreach that the obama administration, mrs. pelosi and majo
for politics at the university of virginia and joins me, good to have you here. i want to play for folks who tuned in with the interview with christine o'donnell, and i wanted your thoughts on that race. >> my opponent has a liberal record that does not resonate with the people and had to resort to dirty true u-tricks and mud slinging but i'm confidents, the polls reflect the voters are seeing right through it. martha: what are the polls telling you about the race. >> it is very, very close, and the republicans face a conundrum in delaware, tomorrow night. essentially, their choice is this: they can pick christine o'donnell with whom i think they agree on more issues, she's clearly more conservative, than the other candidate, congressman mike castle, who is a moderate to liberal republican, and the problem is, delaware is a democratic state. and, every poll i have seen, public and private, suggests that mike castle will win the seat in november, defeating democrat chris kuhns, and christine o'donnell will probably lose the seat in november and it is a conundrum, do you go with the candidate
